Re: “Housing Advocates Say State Back-Rent Payments Could Halve Eviction Rate

They have. You're not talking about actual compassion. You're talking about forcing people to pay other people to take vacations instead of honoring a contract they signed.
Actual compassion is exactly what I said above. You start a non profit, ask people to donate what they can, and you can hand money to those who need it, based on your own criteria.

The tax wouldn't do that. Someone who barely pays their own bills might now not be able to. Now they go to subsidized housing. Why not? And now they can go on vacation, because you'll pay the rent, a d they're paying into the find too, so why not?

Re: “Vermont Democrats Counter Scott With Mandatory Paid Leave Plan

The kochs also fund NPR and the nea. But whatever.
The hard right puts Colorado up near the top. The liberal state home to Boulder.
They explained what they rank and how they weigh things, but it's anti democracy.

You know they're for open borders, funded everything against Trump, and are quite active on liberal causes, right?
Don't be this ignorant and then try to slime them or me.

And this one might even be worse. At least the Trump flag is original.

"but if a program like this can really make a difference, perhaps we shouldn't let isolated anecdotes scare us away from making an investment."

Who is us, comrade? You could always start some sort of non profit that would pay people's rents so they can travel for family vacations. I don't think that would be that successful, but the free market does do wonders.
It's not an anecdote, it's a logical outcome of something like this. Every action made has predictable outcomes. Some are great. Others are bad. Everything is a choice of options.
